MLB Betting Trends


The under is 9-3 in the last 12 Brewers games overall. Milwaukee is 6-0 in its last six Monday games.

St. Louis

The Cardinals are 4-0 in their last four home games. St. Louis is 4-1 in its last five Monday games.


St. Louis will roll out a solid pitcher here, while the Brewers are likely to turn this into a bullpen game. After scoring 13 runs yesterday, Milwaukee is going to have a much more difficult challenge today. I've got to put my money on the Cardinals here as they are an organization that always seems to win their share of big games during crunch time at the end of the season.
